A true work of art.

Re: toy chest

Very nice. I can see you put a lot of love into your work. I also build chests and the Green and Green style inspires me.

Re: Cherry Dresser

Good job. I can see that you put a lot of love in the project. Your Grandson will love it for years to come.

Re: Chest on Chest

Beautiful. I have worked with tiger maple with good results. May I ask what stain and finish did you use to make the grain pop.

Re: Infill plane made from scratch!

Good job. I make planes too. Ron Hock makes good plane blades. You inspire me to make an infill. Do you think 45 degrees is the best over all angle?

Re: Walnut Tall-Case Clock

I can not believe no one has commented on the clock. May be they did not have the words to complement you. I am amazed that you built this with hand tools only. It is truely a master peace. As good as the original if not better.

Re: Shaker blanket Chest

Good job Charles. You have made some good improvements to a style that makes it your own. Love the coopered top.

Re: Six Board Blanket Chest

Beautiful chest. I am an admirer of the hand cut dovetails, as I do them too. I like the inlay, I haven't done one of those yet. Good design and proportions.
